Well, I finally did it and I can't believe I did.
I finally came out to my mom tonight, and I am emotionally drained. I can't remember the last time I cried so much. My mom seemed to take the news rather well. Of course she was met by the typical shock and dumbfoundedness that usually goes hand in hand when a bombshell of this magnitude gets dumped in your lap, but I got the sense that she was pretty positive about this.
I told her some of my stories and experiences and how positive they have been. She warned me (naturally, as all mothers do) to be careful of negative experiences, which I am pretty good about watching out for.
I cried a lot. I'm a bit surprised my mom didn't. We hugged. I told her that I loved her, and my mom told me she loved me too. So, at least my fear of being disowned is now null and void.
She told me she would clue my dad in on all of this, which I am fine with. Truthfully, the news will be easier coming from her than from me. Coming from me, it would probably start World War III.
All in all, I think tonight went very well, and I may actually be able to sleep tonight.
